About Us

A Keeping Place
Visit us and see our great collection. It consists of over 14,000 items presented on 2700 square metres of floor area. In other words – it is big!! You can see, read about and feel magnificent artefacts that are displayed as a record of the Redland Shire’s social history from 1842 to the present day. We have many treasures that exemplify the ingenuity of our pioneers and their descendants. There are rare objects in the marine, military, school, parlour and music rooms. Our unique engine, machinery, transport, textile and doll displays are amazing. And there is so much more! Visit and ask our friendly guides to show you around or just view the collection at your leisure.

A Meeting Place
There is always something happening. School groups visit often to learn about local history. Many different and varied Senior’s groups are frequently welcomed into the Museum. Comments in the visitor’s book express their delight during the visits. Rolling and diverse exhibitions are held regularly. Examples like the blacksmith display, Boggo Road and Botanical Painting exhibitions have attracted many visitors. The Museum organises stimulating concerts and other events that have great appeal and have enriched our local community. We work with outside community groups. To name a few, Rotary, Zonta, Chamber of Commerce members have all held enjoyable functions at the Museum. Our Museum is active and alive!
